Your Gonna like that Sightron! I have an SII 3-12x42mm ao (Now the big Sky) on my .308 Howa Heavy barrel. Changed from a 6-24x40mm ao. It is more practical for hunting and still does a nice job out to 400 yards. Great set up you have!!

Thanks everyone!

jpttersonnh, I like it a lot. I bought this to be my "range scope" for target shooting, I´ll get another one for hunting with lower magnification. Changing between the two scopes should be a breeze with the Optilock rings. Oh, and nice looking Howa you got there

Nice, I´ve been thinking about getting a CZ 527 in .223 with the lighter barrel or something similar for hunting grouse, although the Tikka should be also good for that with the right ammunition like the Lapua Scenar, doesn't tear the bird into pieces

Problem w/ the lighter barrel is it is 1:12 twist, The Varminter is 1:9. We use shotguns here in the U.S. for grouse! As a kid in N.Y. they were the size of an american football.

Didn´t know they had different twist rates for those barrels, thanks for the info! We use shotguns too, but mainly rifles because here you usually find them sitting at the top of a tall pine or spruce near open ground, so they´re much easier to catch with a rifle.

AleksiR,Great choice on the scope.I have 2 Sightron SIII 6-24x50 LRMD scopes,they are incredibly clear,and the adjustments are dead on.

I'm going to buy a couple more Sightron SIII's,but I'm going with the new MOA-2 reticle on them.

Thanks, I bought the scope based on comments I read here (yours included ) and elsewhere. I don´t have too much experience with optics but I really like this one and a friend of mine wants one too after trying mine out.
